Default Screen auto-rotation is NOT working

Hi there

I have the screen auto-rotation on but for the past week, my phone has been stuck on portrait mode.

Basically my pics and Youtube vids can only be viewed in portrait mode and NOT landscape mode

I tried turning the feature on and off and restarting but nothing worked

Any suggestions?

EDIT:

Looks like other folks are having the same issue

Anyone found a fix yet? Or will we have to wait for Google to release a new update? >_>

Did you try recalibrating the gyroscope? (it's under Display in Settings, weird place for it)

Edit: you have an S3 right? The link you posted is for a different phone

I had this problem all I did to fix it was take my battery out and restarted my phone and it worked
